weird, I played for a while and then the game suddenly ended. Maybe there's a time limit? I'm guessing you're supposed to write a Tetris AI in Julia to get a high score, but the scoreboard seems to be just humans so far -- I was able to get 2nd place without too much trouble. :)

One thing that bugged me: the "hold" piece is position directly above the other pieces in the queue, which constantly tricked my peripheral vision into thinking that the hold piece was next. But I suppose a detail like that doesn't matter to an AI.

Where are the details of the contest? What is the deadline?

I think more details will be announced tomorrow, April 2nd

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
